've said on a number of occasions, i don't really think that's the most important gun safety law we can pass. i think number one is background checks. number two, high-capacity magazines. and number three, and strengthening our trafficking laws. so i'm not as concerned about the fate of an assault weapons ban as i am the others. >> the american people as we all watch this, should we expect that if there is going to be anything comprehensive reform on gun violence in the country, it's going to be done by baby steps and not something broad and sweeping? >> i think so. you know, clearly, with background checks, polls show 90% of the american people are in favor of them. it's a number of about 75% in my own state. so i think there's certain things that are going to be easier to do than others. and probably a comprehensive ban. a comprehensive piece of legislation will probably contain poison pills that will keep any of them from being enact enacted. >> congressman john yarmuth, thanks for joining me from kentucky. that's going to wrap up things for me, i'll see you tomorrow. independent sen
